AIDS Resource launched the Early Intervention Services (EIS) and Outreach Program to identify new HIV infections in individuals disproportionately at risk of acquiring the virus. The objective of the program is to employ EIS and outreach efforts at locations where people with disproportionate HIV risk congregate. This focused approach facilitates access to HIV testing, counseling, and condom distribution for individuals who may not otherwise seek HIV services.

Population(s) Served

AIDS Resource offers free PrEP services to anyone who is at substantial risk of acquiring HIV. Our monthly PrEP clinic is at our Williamsport office. PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a medication that HIV-negative people take to reduce their risk of getting HIV if there is an exposure to the virus.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
